Where is it?


The house is located next to the MCG and right in-between Bridge road and Swan street, two of the main streets of Richmond with plenty of grocery stores, bars, restaurants and cafes. There are a few coffee shops nearby as well some of Melbourne's legendary pubs.
A 10min walk gets you to a bigger supermarket.

Buzzy restaurants
Great brunch options include ‘Fifty Acres’ on Bridge Road (6 min walk); ‘Feast of Merit’, a great community focussed social enterprise on Swan Street (10 min walk)
Cozy cafés
The closest coffee/brekkie option is a few minutes walk up the street at “Rowena Corner Store”. You can also buy some basic groceries there (milk, eggs, etc.) (2 min walk)
